Try to run! Try to hide! Someone lurks in the night tide...

Night Tide, a new musical inspired by the 1961 mystery-thriller B movie, tells the kitschy and compelling tale of Johnny Drake, a lonely Naval sailor. As he enjoys his first shore leave exploring the boardwalks, tiki bars, and beach parties of a spooky seaside town, Johnny meets Mora, a seductive and mysterious young woman who works in the sideshow as a mermaid. Johnny immediately becomes smitten with Mora, but he soon discovers that she may in fact be a real siren of the sea, and she may have lured her previous boyfriends to their watery graves...

Running time: 2 hours
